Playbulb zoocoro animal lampKids love animals so they’re bound to love this new line of lamps, particularly little ones who don’t like to be left in the dark.

Meet Playbulb Zoocoro!

Playbulb Zoocoro lights are small plastic lamps that are rechargeable, and can be used while plugged in, or away from their charging base to supply light anywhere you need it.

The array of cute animal shapes includes a bear, a duck, an airplane (called Airwhale), bunny and a pig.

These lamps connect to the Mipow Playbulb App so that you can control and change the lights from anywhere in your home. You can also adjust the colour at the touch of a button; providing a delightful warm glow for cool evenings, or a cooler colourful hue for those hot nights. You can also manage multiple lamps from the same app.

There’s also a feature called ‘taps sequence’ that lets you use your phone and the Playbulb app to establish control over what happens with a series of taps on the lamp.playbulb zoocoro erinlyyc

The lights will turn on and off with a tap, and a series of taps will also change the colour and set the rainbow effect going, without needing your smart phone.

A nightlight that’s fun

There are some cute effects built into the app that lets you have fun with these lights. You can set a rainbow colour shift, flashing, pulsing, or other effects. Kids will have loads of fun controlling these lights using a smart phone or tablet on their own. You can also set it up in a baby’s room, and use it as an adorable nightlight.

Playbulb Zoocoro lamp is also a speaker

This amazing little lamp also does more. Like the eponymous Playbulb light bulbs (read my review of those bulbs here), this light is also a speaker, meaning you can put on soothing music, or meditative sounds as you lull yourself or a child to sleep with delicate color.

Once fully charged, the lights will last almost the entire night once removed from the charging base.

I’m a fan of the Playbulb line and have written about its lights before, including the Playbulb Candle and Sphere as well as the outdoor Playbulb Garden. I find the entire line super easy to use and set up, it’s durable, the lights are smart and fun and everyone that visits my home loves them too.

Similar to another set of new Playbulb lights, the holiday  ‘String’ light, (read about those here – they’re great for the holidays!) this product was conceived then set up for funding on Indigogo. The Zoocoro campaign is closed, but Playbulb tells me the lights will be available soon on their website.

For more info on the Playbulb Zoocoro lamps check out their website. They’re currently on Preorder for $59USD.
